HP P2000 G3 replication limitations..

Hi All, 


As per P2000 refrence guide


"If you intend to create snapshots of, create volume copies of, or replicate volumes in a vdisk, ensure that the vdisk contains no more than four master volumes, snap pools, or both. For example: 2 master volumes and 2 snap pools; 3 master volumes and 1 snap pool; 4 master volumes and 0 snap pools."



This means that i can't have more than 2 master voulmes in a vdisk. Now the issue is that we have 150 GB x 10 luns that we want to replicate and we have 450 GB disks size. Considering the above statement we will have to create multiple vDisks each having max 2 master volumes and 2 snap pools, but this would result in lot of wastage of space. 


Can you please advice if we can create 1 vdisk of 16x450 GB disk and add all 10 master volumes and their snap pools in that one big vdisk.
